Hikes on demand 2021

Hikes on demand are meant for hikers with or without a guide, there are certain possibilities to hike between May and the end of October.

It is also possible to hike outside the above period, however not all the hikes can be done, because of the weather conditions (like snow).
Families are also welcome! A family will be charged for three persons, despite the number of children.
We have developed four different family programs:

In principle all hikes are possible in this area. There are hikes of 1 too 1,5 hours with a minimum change of altitude, but there are also hikes that takes a whole day, which differ in altitude up to 1900 meters! Even more, when wished for.

You can walk with a small day-backpack and we will transfer your luggage, or you can hike with a tent for example five days and bring your own food and luggage… everything is possible.

Hereafter I have given some examples of possible hikes.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact The Bergtoppers.

A Combination of Self Lead and Guided

This year we organize one different hiking week.
A hiking week consists of a part where you determine which hikes you do (we can advice of course) and a part where you do guided hikes with a minimum of 5 persons.

Hiking week “Montgarri”

The first 2 till 3 days you do some hikes yourself with a detailed description, after that you do a 3-days guided hike with a little group (minimum 5, maximum 12)
The first days you can do from the Bergtoppers, where you stay at the camping or in the cabin of the Bergtoppers, or from a special mountain hotel towards the Spanish border. Of course both half board.
The last 3 days you spend the night in refuges (half board).
